14 weeks

Yesterday marked 14 weeks, and I have to say it has really flown by.  I had a really rough week last week, and was pretty sick all week.  I finally found some allergy meds that are safe to take, and that work so hopefully the sickness is over.  I have felt really good so far this week, I am just hoping it continues.  I apologize if I repeat myself, I am convinced when you become pregnant your brain instantly turns to mush. I have been trying to think of a way to do my weekly posts and I really like how Kara over at the Pickerill Life did a kind of fill in the blank each week for her "bump dates", so I think I am going to do the same thing.  I am going to add a few categories of my own as well, one of them is questions for other moms.  I am adding this because I don't read the books or magazines.  Its not that I don't want what is best for my child, because I have researched and know how to take care of myself, and what to do so that I will have a healthy baby, but I just don't think there are any books that can prepare me for this baby.  I would rather go into it blind and hopefully it will all come to me.  I also prefer hearing from moms rather than something in a book.

Total Weight Gain: I am still down one pound

Changes From Last Week: Feeling so much better and I have noticed my face breaking out.  I know it is another symptom but it is just now hitting me.

Sleep: Like a baby =).  I have noticed that I am getting some of my energy back.

Food Cravings: I have always had a love for things in jars (pickles,olives,peppers,pickled okra) and it has intensified lately.

Food Aversions: before this week it was everything, but I am getting back to normal.

Movement: I'm sure the little lemon is moving around like crazy, but I can't feel it yet.

Gender: I have had a feeling it was a boy the whole time, but noting confirmed yet.

What I miss: now that we are having gorgeous spring days, I long for a cold beer after work.

Questions for other moms: Did any of you have a "feeling" about the gender, and was it true?  Like I said I have felt the whole time it was a boy, but I had a dream it was a girl the other night. 

What I am looking forward to: Finding out what we are having.  I honestly have no preference either way.  I have always thought I wanted a girl, but a healthy baby is what is most important to me.

Best Moment of the week: not waking up and puking in the mornings =)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


  1. I felt from day one that we were having a girl even though I had dreams it was a boy. And I was right! We are having a girl!

  2. I maintain that it's a girl!!! Can't wait to find out if the little nugget is a bambino or bambina!!

  3. So lgad you're doing well! Thanks for the shout out! We thought a boy first but I wouldn't say that was a feeling----we just liked the idea of a boy first. In the back of my mind I knew Emma was a girl. I had a few dreams before we found out the gender she was a girl too. I guess I was right!
